The purpose of the trail is to encourage children to use mathematical observations and vocabulary in a fun and interesting way. Throughout the trail the children will encounter problem-solving activities they can complete.

They will work with 2d and 3d shapes and use vocabulary to describe them. There are also aspects of counting and estimating within the trail.

Links with national curriculum: Ma3 Shape, space and measures, Ma2 Numbers and the number system.
